This weeks “to do list”.
Drop off recycling (there were a lot less beer bottles than usual!)
Drop of donation clothing (aka…FAT clothes)
Cash in loose coins at the bank……$35.82!
When I do something fun like that, I hate to just put that money in my purse and spend it on groceries, or on every day items. It needs to be on something special! So I decided to buy a Milk Frother! My old one seems to be shot, which is why I have been frequenting Starbucks more often. I figure it will pay for itself, right? So really, it’s like…..free. I am really good at analyzing…….and justifying. It’s a gift.
On the way home from my WW Kick Ass Weigh In, I was really going to town on this apple at a stoplight, when I realized I was kind of gnawing on it like an old man eating a chicken wing! Then I wondered if the driver of the car beside me was watching! I slowly lowered what was left of my devoured apple to my lap and tried to act all cool. I was really hungry, and I just didn’t want to waste any. I choked on a seed right before this, but then I was driving, so I know nobody saw.
I swear I just changed angles, but the picture above looks like WAY more chicken salad than I really ate! Along side I had carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, celery with Better n Peanut Butter, and some juicy bing cherries!
Afternoon Sweet Treat!
4 PPV…..and well worth it! But I did have to leave the house so I wouldn’t eat another one!
The first bite, the Caramel on the top, was amazing, and the very last bite…the bottom tip of the cone with a chunk of chocolate in it, was almost sinful!
I talked to my daughter in the afternoon about a particular pair of older jeans I had. She knew the pair I was talking about. They are a size 10, and I really thought I could wear them out of the house now. I wanted to know if she thought they were too “dated”?
The genius said…”Why don’t you just go to Target and get a pair. They’re probably like twenty bucks?”
So I did. And they were.
After trying on a couple of pairs of pants in a size 10, I just kept getting more pants and putting them on in the dressing room! At one point I said….”what is happening to me?” It is really ridiculous how big I was smiling and how much fun I was having grabbing 10’s off of the rack!
THESE ARE A SIZE 10! WHOO WHOO!!!!
Those thighs still need major work! 🙂
They’re no fancy jeans…..pockets are plain….but they are actually stretchy and comfy and $22…….and did I mention they are a size TEN???
Our evening was spent with some old friends catching up and having a great time. I enjoyed the food and drink and stuck to small portions. Knowing that I had no other “social obstacles” this week, I planned on using most of, or all of, my 49 bonus points last night. I don’t think I used them all, but I will spend the rest of my week eating as though I did.
I drank lots of water last night. I drank a lot before we went, while we were there, and when we got home. I am glad I did, because me feet aren’t even PUFFY!
Refresh…I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.
The food I ate today and it’s PPV.
Breakfast = (fruit) 0
Lunch = 7
Snack = 4
Dinner = 20
Party food and drink = 44
Before anybody freaks out…..I don’t really think that I ate and drank all of my bonus points, but I think I will have better results at the scale on my next weigh in, if I act as though I did. That’s my plan. 🙂
Total = 75
Activity Points Earned Today = 0
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 0
How many glasses of water I drank today = 15
